Such beautiful eye candy! :-) I’ll take it as inspiration.

2 pumps of Clinique DDML+ as a moisturizer-primer,
then a pea-sized amount of Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue applied with fingers,
followed by MAC Mineralize liquid foundation used as an undereye and blemish […]

Foundation brushes

A turquoise blue on toes (CoverGirl Outlast in #295).
Really liking this and will be using it a lot this summer.

Full makeup: Tinted moisturizer, concealer, EL Bronze Goddess bronzer with a pop of blush color on top, tinted brow gel, eyeshadow, highlighter, eyeliner, mascara, red-orange or peachy pink lipstick, and a spritz […]

Nars e/s duo’s. And a YSL lipstick.

Baking soda, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, coconut oil, Ivory soap, baby powder, NYX blushes and eye shadows, L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara, Revlon and Covergirl lipsticks, Milani baked products and […]

I’d have to choose on the basis of foundation or tinted moisturizer, since everything else needs much less precision for me. So I’d have to go with MAC or Bare Minerals.

MAC, Nars, Laura Geller, Milani, Revlon

2nd the L’O Voluminous Carbon Black.

Classic with an edge. I too have gotten more confident with my look as I’ve gotten older. I know exactly what products to use to achieve the effects I want and how to apply them. I’ve gotten more into middle- […]

Sunscreens. Fragranced products on my face or near my eyes. A lot of eye liners irritate my eyes, not sure what it is. Lip plumpers make my teeth hurt.

When I first saw them, they did remind me of TF. Will check for CT brand when I go to Nordies Stanford next time. Neither Stanford nor Valley Fair carried CT brand in-store last time I checked.

Totally agree with everything else said here.

Another issue for me is lack of transparency and lack of what would normally be considered common sense, when a good skincare or foundation product is changed to an […]

A lipstick from Woolworths.

Laura Geller cosmetics, especially the baked products, are one of my favorite lines, very underrated (or rather undiscovered in most cases). They were in Sephora briefly a few years ago, then were pulled from the […]

I organize and put away behind closed cabinet doors what’s not in the current rotation.

I avoid collecting lots of samples since I end up not using them, but I will use a sample I was curious enough to have made for me.

I ignore ’em, or say amusedly that it’s just “art” and “fun stuff” for me, implying that I hold it lightly, with no implication that others should use makeup or think about it in the same way I do.

Raquel Welch and Guerlain.
Diana Ross and Nars.
Natalie Portman and Bobbi Brown.
Gisele Bundchen and Laura Mercer.
Meghan Trainor and MAC.

Unscented, works well, lowest price for the most value for me personally. When I find something I like, I quit looking around. I avoid sunscreen where possible and consider them toxic.
